Alert font size

  • Hi, I’m trying to increase the font-size of the alert, I want it to fit almost the entire screen.

    I’ve copied the css to custom and modified the font-size that comes at 70% by default, I’ve tried with 300% and even with 300px but no effect on the size of the text.
    Can someone tell me how to? I don’t want to modify de original alert.js where the font-size is 30px for the title and 22px for the message.

    That’s my custom.css

    .ns-box {
    background: #fff;
    padding: 17px;
    line-height: 1.4;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
    z-index: 1;
    color: black;
    font-size: 300%;
    position: relative;
    display: table;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    max-width: 100%;
    border-radius: 5px;
    .ns-alert {
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: #fff;
    padding: 17px;
    line-height: 1.4;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
    z-index: 3;
    color: white;
    font-size: 300%;
    position: fixed;
    text-align: center;
    right: 0;
    left: 0;
    margin-right: auto;
    margin-left: auto;
    top: 40%;
    width: 40%;
    height: auto;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    border-radius: 20px;

    @Varguit the problem is that there are some inline styles, some css ninja should get you going

    .ns-alert span.light[style],
    .ns-alert span.thin[style] {
        font-size: 60px !important;

    @strawberry-3-141 I am also trying to accomplish bigger alert text. I made the suggested addition to my custom.css but it doesn’t work. What am I missing?

    Okay, I figured it out. For posterity: one needs to address the specific sub-style:

    .ns-alert span.light.dimmed.medium,
    .ns-alert span.thin.thin.bright.small {
        font-size: 80px !important;
